Meet The Crew: Elizabeth M. Mechem

Photo: Elizabeth and her motorcycle

I’m Elizabeth; co-host and co-producer of the BiCast. I became involved with the BiCast at Lynnette’s invitation almost a year ago. I’ve learned quite a bit working on this podcast and have been enjoying myself greatly.

My coming out story began when I first heard the word “bisexual” When I was nineteen, way back in 1992. Until then, I was trying as hard as I could to suppress any same gender attractions, as I didn’t understand that being attracted to more than one gender was possible and completely normal. After doing some work on myself, along with a lot of healing from a traumatic past, I was able to understand and embrace my sexuality completely. I came out to my close friends and have been repeatedly coming out ever since (as bi folk often do).

Growing up in a military household, I’ve lived many places. Currently, I live and work in Lawrence, KS. My home is a happy one filled with children, pets, and one loving spouse. My day job is as a church secretary here in town. When it comes to relaxing, I enjoy riding my motorcycle, chainsawing stuff, fiber arts, and binge-watching television shows with the kids.

Meet The Crew: Amy Leibowitz Mitchell

 

Hey, I’m Amy, they/them please and thank you. I’m a co-host as well as an author, freelance editor, and reading nerd. I have a tendency to fan-crush all over my favorite authors, and I love to talk about books and writing. I have several novels published as A.M. Leibowitz, primarily with bisexual characters of various genders and relationships.

 

I didn’t come out as bi and gender fluid until I was in my late 30s, right before publishing my first book. I’d known for years that I was multi-gender attracted, but it was hard to admit it even to myself. Being out publicly has opened up a whole new world for me. I’ve built new relationships and rekindled old ones now that I can be my authentic self. Through writing, I’ve been able to work through a lot of the complexities of my identity.

 

I like to joke that I’m “half of everything.” Raised in an interfaith family with strong ethnic ties on both sides, I have always lived in the spaces between one culture and another. It makes perfect sense, then, that my sexuality and gender would reside in those spaces too. As a person living with multiple invisible disabilities, I also understand the importance of really being understood and believed about who we are and what we need.

 

Besides all that, I’m a spouse and a parent of the two most wonderful kids (I may be a bit biased). In what little spare time I have leftover, I’m a violinist with a local community orchestra. Music is as much a core part of my identity as anything else.

 

If you want to talk to me or send me awesome bi books to read, you can find me any of these places:
